House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says that she would prefer war savings be used as a means to offset a payroll tax cut deal made by lawmakers Thursday.I heard this somewhere and found it at Talk Radio News Service.
Do you think she knows that a lot of the war is "off budget"? Does she realize that we are paying for our wars by deficit spending, as Democrats have been complaining about for a decade, and thus there is no way we can use "savings" from pulling out of Iraq and cutting back in Afghanistan to pay for anything. It is debt. It is debt piled upon debt. To paraphrase the woman talking to Bertrand Russell, it is debt all the way down.
Congratulations to both sides of the aisle in the House for coming to an agreement.
